Okay, back to Apollo history "week". Last one:

What was the name of the Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) on Apollo 13 which was never used and now drifts in space forever, still folded up in the jettisoned LEM?

How about this: People are allowed to google any other Apollo flight except Apollo 13 and try to deduce the answer from what they learn.

I don't know the name of the lunar rover, however the LEM would burn up upon entering earths atmosphere and would not stay in orbit. Location of the Apollo vehicles shows:
Apollo 13
Command Module "Odyssey"
Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center, Hutchinson, Kansas
(formerly at Musee de l'Air, Paris, France)
Lunar Module "Aquarius"
Burned up in Earth's atmosphere 17 April 1970

Okay, I'll give the answer:

Spoiler: ShowHide
It was a trick question. The answer is that the rover had no name as Apollo 13 didn't take a rover with it. I believe the first mission to take a rover was Apollo 15 if memory serves.

Two chances to get this question correct:

Name either the year of birth or year of death (bonus points for both!) of Queen Elizabeth I.

Admiral Horatio Nelson (in the battle of Trafalgar)?

1558 to 1603 was her reign. She was born in 1533.

Something about the date did seem a little off to me since i remember that her daddy died sometime in the 50'  :-D

Edit: Just checked wiki and Henry 8. died in 1547. Sometimes i remember a memory and yet its just a fantasy. Beats me.


It wasn't Horatio Nelson, not a Napoleon's fleet.
This was Spanish Armada from 1588.

Wasn't this a former pirate? Can't remember the name, though...

Not sure if he and her majesty would be flattered by the title you gave him, but yes, I believe most people know him for being a pirate. Yarrr!

Ahhhh has to be Francis Drake, right?

Yup, Sir Francis Drake it is! As Ronald Reagan once said "He lived by the sea, died on it, and was buried in it." likening him to the dead Challenger crew.

Over to you Laura Hunt.

Oh no! Sometimes I don't know why I reply because I never know what to come up with next :-D

Does anybody else want to take over? If not, I'll try to come up with something tomorrow.
